cnbc will be watching all those. as always, thank you. let's take a further step back now and look at how all of this looks. andrea mitchell as covered a lot of politics in washington over the years. she's standing by in our d.c. newsroom tonight. andrea, you've seen them come and seen them go. this has hardly been a profile in courage. have you ever seen anything like this? >> i actually never have. we've had crises before, political crises. we've had in our lifetime 9/11, katrina, other national emergencies, tragedies. in one case or another, in all of those cases, one branch of government at least, if one failed the other would step in. in this case all branches of government, our entire government seems to be dysfunctional. it's even questioning in people's minds the checks and balances that was the genius of the framers. now it's stalemate. it's gridlock. i've never seen anything where there have been so little leadership and where people are angry, disgusted and i think really rebellious out there.
